Rep. Allen Opposes Democrats' Unconstitutional Gun Grab

Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) today released the following statement after opposing both H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 in the House, two Democrat bills that would infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans:

“Federal firearm laws are already very strong in ensuring prohibited persons do not purchase firearms, but criminals don’t abide by the law. Studies show mass background checks won’t do anything to address gun violence or keep criminals from obtaining an illegal firearm, and these bills will only make it harder for Americans to protect themselves. Specifically they will criminalize the transfer of firearms between two private citizens and add red-tape to the process in which law-abiding citizens purchase a firearm.

"As a proud supporter of the Second Amendment, I will continue to protect the right to bear arms.”
